Özet

This study investigated the presence of parasitic annelids on Carassius gibelio in Lake Uluabat, Turkey. Data were obtained from on-site surveys carried out between March 2006 and February 2007. Only one parasite species, Piscicola geometra (Linnaeus, 1761), was identified on only one samples of Carassius gibelio's operculum. Although P. geometra was reported from various lakes in Turkey (such as Sapanca, Keban Dam Lake, Terkos, Cavusu and Uluabat), up to now there has been no report on Carassius gibelio from lake Uluabat.
